Before I start this, I need to say I am not being paid by this company to endorse this (although I should, because I’m all about this thing). I got a Critter Catcher and am so excited about it!
Bugs in a studio are a big problem for me, for several reasons. One, they can be super loud and if I’m using a sensitive mic you can totally hear buzzing or wings flapping in the background. Two, I’m terrified of most bugs. Fireflies and butterflies are okay, but I still don’t want them in my studio or in my life.
I’ve been in Nashville for almost three weeks, and southern bugs are a special kind of huge. A wolf spider the size of my hand was in my sink and I about had a heart attack. I hid in the bathroom while my visiting friend put it in a cup and threw it outside, screaming the whole time. Bees are also 4x larger here than in Michigan. So, dealing with my new southern bug friends is an issue.
Enter the Critter Catcher. It looks like this:
It claims to catch and release bugs without hurting them. Although I was skeptical, I ordered one immediately. I hate hurting anything (I save drowning ants out of my sink) so this would be perfect, if it worked.
I got it yesterday and needed it a few hours later when a moth wouldn’t leave me alone in my studio. Moths are not loud, but they are annoying when they’re flying into your face as you’re trying to work and have a tight delivery deadline.
I busted out my Critter Catcher, ready to test it out. I apologized to the moth because I assumed it probably wouldn’t work and would crush it to death, but I needed to try it out.
You guys, it worked. It grabbed the moth tightly, and I was able to take it right outside and let it go. I didn’t have to get close to it, I didn’t kill it or hurt it, and my studio was moth free. I’m amazed! I can’t recommend it enough.
You can buy one for $16.95 plus shipping. It’s so worth it. If you don’t care about killing bugs, this is still better because you don’t have to deal with the clean up after. You don’t have to get near them. Check it out at http://www.mycrittercatcher.com/ if you’re curious. If you decide to get it, let me know! I’m excited to see what you think and if you love it as much as I do.
